About the Historic Newspaper Clippings Collection:
Since 1933, LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans Library has collected newspaper clippings relating to the history and accomplishments of Louisiana's first public health sciences institution. The Newspaper Clippings Collection is an ongoing project that will eventually index over 70 years of news about LSU's professional schools of the health sciences.
Commonly referred to as "the clip file" in library parlance, the collection indexes newspaper articles from such publications as the New Orleans States-Item, The Times-Picayune and other local sources. A wealth of historical information about the history and development of LSU Health Sciences Center can be found in this collection. From women in medicine(link removed) to student societies(link removed), the collection has it all. It is easily searchable via keywords, and is also indexed with subject headings. In addition, users can browse(link removed) the newspaper clippings by year, literally viewing the electronic collection exactly as it appears in print.
Due to copyright, images from this collection are restricted to viewing only on the LSUHSC-New Orleans campus or via login with your library barcode. However, anyone can search the text of the collection, and excerpts of the newspaper articles are viewable to anyone.
